Overview

Overview

St. Rita Catholic School says

St. Rita Catholic School is a Catholic, co-educational day school for students from kindergarten through eighth grade. The school was established in 1964 by the Jesuits in conjunction with the formation of St. Rita Catholic Church. The school was staffed by the Bernardine Sisters of the Order of St. Francis for over 25 years. Lay professionals continue the work of the Bernardines today. All teachers are chosen for their competency and dedication. The Jesuits served the school since its inception through their ministry at St. Rita Catholic Church until 2003. St. Rita Catholic Community is now staffed by diocesan priests. Since 1964 the school has undergone six major expansions.

Today the school utilizes more than 60,000 square feet of classroom space, offices, science and computer labs, library, art room, gymnasium, locker rooms and cafeteria. The success of St. Rita Catholic School is due in large part to the partnership that exists between the school and the parish. The school is also blessed with faculty members, staff, administration and parents committed to ensuring the spiritual and academic growth of its students. Such commitment is evidenced by the number of former Spartans who now choose to educate their own children at St. Rita Catholic School.

Mission Statement

The mission of St. Rita Catholic School, a parish community school, is to educate children in accordance with the educational ministry of the Catholic Church.
